Official Scouting Report

  • 5Class Rating
  • SS/OFPosition Projection

08/06/2023 - National Showcase - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Colten is a 2024 grad out of West Central Valley in Redfield, Iowa. He shows an athletic approach in all that he does on the diamond. Defensively, we saw him at shortstop this time around. He displays a ready approach, creates angles on the ball and shows solid range to both his backhand and to his glove-side. We would like to see him follow his throws a bit more to create more carry on the throws. At the plate, Colten does not get cheated. He takes healthy hacks and a has good feel for the barrel. On the mound, fastball topped out at 72mph with tailing action. Curveball sat 62-64mph with tight spin and his changeup was 65-66mph with deception. He has a whippy arm with some rhythm. With one more year of high school in front of him, we expect Colten to get himself into a position to take baseball to the next level.

07/28/2023 - Baseball Factory National World Series at JRTC (HS) Colten is an athletic OF who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind ball and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a great teammate and is very coachable on the field. Colten has potential with time and room to progress his game.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
